Greek Life

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I wasn't personally interested in joining a sorority because that really isn't my scene, but girls that I know who joined like it a lot. The frat parties are sometimes fun although the houses are cramped and sometimes dirty in this area. A small percentage of the student body participates in Greek life, but those who do enjoy it and I see them fundraising often.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is a large amount of Greek associations on campus. They vary from cultural to professional to academic fraternities and sororities. With such a large population, they do not dominate the campus. You can see the Greeks shine during annual events such as Homecoming and Spring Fling, where these clubs show off their colors and letters. Greeks are also known for their parties, offering those who can’t get into bars and clubs another option for something to do at night. The campus seems to be divided on its feelings toward the Greeks. While some people find Greek life to be an incredible experience, others feel as though members are secretive and cliquish.

It's best for students interested in joining the Greeks to get to know a member of a fraternity or sorority. They aren’t as cliquish or intimidating as some people may think. These organizations also have events such as dating-game shows and bachelor auctions. Many students prefer professional fraternities because they help make connections with alumni and non-alumni in professional fields. They are also a reliable source for resume help and internships. Fraternities are supposed to provide community service, though most students at Temple don’t recognize them doing much.
